Inclusion Foresight

Inclusion Residency & Resources

Inclusion foresight resources provide the tools public entity pools and their members need to respond to the myriad of social dynamics surfacing within communities.

Emerging equity and inclusion perspectives will influence future public entity needs, claims, staffing and board compositions. Inclusion foresight materials can help pools be prepared with innovative risk management solutions and develop a culture of goodwill that embraces diversity in hiring and board service.

Throughout 2019, Dr. Robin Hindsman Stacia delivered conference content, a pool-specific inclusion toolkit, a short video series on inclusion as good governance, coaching on inclusion issues, and an issue of Intelligence.
